This simplistically detailed porcelain tub was made by The Trenton Potteries Company in the late 1800’s to early 1900’s. This bath has a glazed pure white inside and an over roll-rim. The drain is at the bottom of the tub near the square end. This isn’t just a typical white bath tub; if you look closely, there is crazing throughout the whole tub as well as the legs.

Crazing is a phenomenon that produces a network of very delicate and fine cracks on the surface of a material. In this instance it is within the glaze layer that is painted over the porcelain, and then put into a kiln. This is a desired effect sought out by many people because it gives an extra touch of antique flavor.
